Team News:

Roberto Mancini is considering moving Gary Medel out of defense and into the midfield, as he would prefer to continue building the center back pairing of Jeison Murillo and Joao Miranda. That would mean either Geoffrey Kondogbia or Fredy Guarin would have to be moved out of midfield. Please let it be Guarin. [Gazzetta World]

Inter haven't beaten Juventus at home since the 2009-10 season. Richard Hall over at ESPN FC thinks that Geoffrey Kondogbia could be the key to Inter's success in the Derby D'Italia this weekend. [ESPN FC]

Young Inter striker Rej Manaj gave an interview to Inter Channel yesterday, in which he apologized for his Facebook rant against Albania national team coach Gianni De Biasi. [FC Internazionale Milano Website]

Mauro Icardi's agent (aka his wife Wanda Nara) has made it clear she thinks Icardi could help the Argentine national team, who have begun Russia 2018 qualifying with two straight losses.

Transfer Rumors:

Rumors have also surfaced that Inter are pursuing young PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who has still not found favor with manager Laurent Blanc. This move would likely see Inter sell Marcelo Brozovic. [SempreInter]
